Reflection

Monday, January 10, 2011

One nice thing about winter is I start focusing on the interior of my home.  This is a nice time to switch around or change artwork.  I found this self portrait of my daughter in a pile of drawings that I’m finally going to have framed.   I hope she doesn’t mind?!?  This would also make great personal stationary for her!

Arrange some fresh flowers around your home this week.

Threw out all of my old wooden spoons and bought new ones at www.williams-sonoma.com

Loving the body butter lotion by Bliss  www.blissworld.com  The scent is great and I think my nails are actually looking a little better.

i know I’ve mentioned this product before, but it really works.  The rose salve balm for lips and cuticles at www.bigelowchemists.com a great little luxury.

If you have a girl in your life who carries a backpack I love the rollerball perfume by www.katespade.com called Twirl.  The scent is fresh and fun.  Convenient to carry anywhere.

I’m loving this midwest artist Lars-Birger Sponberg.  Will he be the next artist who’s paintings will be in The Art Institute in Chicago?  I’m betting on it!  Check out his website.

Discovered writer Julia Reed who wrote the book on her home in New Orelean’s  The House on First Street .

My new favorite little luxury is www.kiyomipjs.com for the most lux PJ’s.

Here I thought everyone drank coffee in the morning, not true.  My friends and family had this conversation over break and here are what some of them grab in the morning.

-Coffee, 3/4 regular and 1/4 decaf

-Hot Water with Lemon

-Chicken Noodle soup with extra broth

-Hot Chocolate

-Cold Ice Water

-Half Coffee with Half Whole Milk

-Mountain Dew

-Hot Tea and Lemon

-Shot of Vodka with a chaser of Beer ( Yikes )
